"I just wanted to tell you how wonderful the butterfly release ceremony was on Saturday. What a joy to have been a participant! A butterfly landed on my husband's hat and refused to leave - so I am several others got photos of her. Then she landed on my back and wouldn't leave.
I think it was Nancy Smoak, my sister, or a butterfly she sent; and I heard someone say, 'That's Grammy saying goodbye' about the same butterfly. So moving!
We also realized as the service was about to begin that it was exactly a year to the hour that we held Nancy's committal service. Thank you and everyone at the hospice who is involved with this incredible program! We will be talking about it for months to come."
